Duration:1 hour
Loud noise like a jet engine that went off and on for an hour making strange sounds.

Me and my brother heard a loud sound like a jet that was pulsing its engines. we live in the middle of a large neighborhood with the closest airport 2 cities away. The sound would stop and begin again off and on for about an hour, sometimes it would make a screaching noise and return back to a rumble. It was extreamly loud and unexplained. there was no events or anything in the area that would make this type of sound.

((NOTE FROM READER/UNCONFIRMED))

This is an explination in regaurds to the reports filed on 8/11/04 and 11/8/05 in cranston RI. The jet sounds heard were comming from the Florida Power and Lighting Power Plant located on Shun Pike in Johnston RI. On both nights posted the power plant experienced a large build up of steam pressure that had to be vented off. As steam passes through the relief valves it creates a loud jet engine like sound that can be heard many miles away.
